Question about Hunter Fan Company 7-day programmable thermostat

Open Question

I have a Hunter 44860 programmable thermostat. In "Cool" mode, I can't program the temp. to below 76 degrees - the temp cycles back around to 95 degrees. I can manually override the thermostat to a cooler, "turn-on" temp, but isn't that why one buys a programmable thermostat, to not have to do this?

SOURCE: Instruction Manual for Model 44860 Hunter Thermostat

Well, I consulted with Randell (my 12 year old grandson) - he assisted me in finding the solution in converting cooling to heating on the touch pad. Jameson (the 4 year old grandson) looked on, wanted to help Pa-Pa - but, we could only listen to his demands to help.

I still need an instruction manual - can you advise me how to obtain a replacement (or print one from the internet)?

Your response will be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: I set temp to 74 and stop at 70 and decresing.

The only thing I can think of other than being just old and worn out is that by design it may not be set to run but so much at a time. Has this always done this since you have had it? It may be needing calibration. One thing you can try is to set it at 2 degrees higher than you want it and then it would shut off at the temp you actually want.

SOURCE: thermostat takes too long to cool down 1 degree

Thermostats don't cool or heat. They are just the control device that tells the furnance or AC to operate and register the present temperature and tell the furnance or A/C to shut off, once the desired temperature has been reached.

Most programmable thermostats will take at least 1-2 weeks to "learn" how long to run the furnance or A/C in order to reach the desired temperatures you've programmed into it, for the time you want it be that temperature. Variables such as extremely hot days and higher humidity will also affect your cooling system.

Give it a little time to self-learn and it should adjust itself after a week or two of operation. You might want to take some time to review and familiarize yourself with the owners manual to see what Hunter advises for setting up and using the thermostat.

You may need to have your A/C checked to see if you're running low on freon, or need to have the coils cleaned, need to change the air filter, etc.

Hope this helps and best regards!

My Goodman unit won't cool below 78 degrees inside during this heatwave. The thermostat says


your home may not be insulated well enough or you could have leaking duct or your system may not be charged correctly ac systems are not sized to cool below 76 degrees above 90 degrees outdoors because this will increase your utility bills during the cooler temperatures. thank your governement and all the regulations we have to follow for this. they would rather you save money than be comfortable. and we are actually in violation of state law and federal law if we install a unit that will cool below 76 degrees on 90 degree outdoor temp

Message: "in recovery"


the "in recovery mode" is refering to a thing called energy recovery management its one of the features on your tstat what it does- when you are using the program on your tstat the "in recovery" starts your unit early so if the tstat is set to be 70 degrees at 8 in the morning when 8 o clock hits it will already be 70 degrees in your house you can turn this feature off if you want in the installation setup codes
